Tiger Woods Complains About Slow Play

By Darren

Have you ever played golf in Sydney during the afternoon on the weekend. If you have perhaps you can relate to what Tiger is talking about in regards to slow play.

Slow play on the golf course is usually a habit that a golfer acquires over time, as he or she acquires bad habits. Or it's the result of the golfer never having been taught proper golf etiquette. It seems slow play in golf is rampent worldwide and is a real turn off for all levels of golfers. As far as I am concerned anything over 4 and a half hours is a slow round, and begins to affect the fun factor.

So what can you do to improve your speed of play.

1. Develop routines, players with pre-shot routines play a lot faster than those without a routine.

2. Never delay playing a shot because you're having a conversation with a playing partner.

3. Play from the correct set of tees if you're a 90 and above scorer, you have no business playing the championship tees. Doing so only adds strokes, which add time.

Good golfing

p.s The picture of John Daly could remind you of another solution, if you hit too many balls in the water just walk off the course that will certainly speed up play.
